He led Indiana State in scoring in each of his four seasons and averaged more than twenty points in his final three years in Terre Haute. He was selected as an All-American in 1983, 1985, and 1986, and was inducted into the ISU Hall of Fame in 2010. A two-time member of the All Missouri Valley Conference first team, Williams is one of three ISU Sycamores on the MVC All-Centennial team, joining Larry Bird and Carl Nicks. Williams also was honored by his high school, Washington High School, in Indianapolis in 2013, when he was inducted into the high school’s basketball Hall of Fame. For the past thirteen years, Heritage has been blessed by Williams’ presence, as he tends to our athletic facilities and even helps to direct traffic to and from campus on busy 75th Street. He still loves basketball and shares the experience through individual training with Heritage students who want some extra help on the court.
